When I hear oh

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40


00:02:50 --> 00:02:55

Even Hamlet allows salatu salam ala Rasulillah who earlier CIBJO sending him to see him and cathedra

00:02:56 --> 00:03:31

our praises due to Allah we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge and Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires whom Allah guides no one can misguide. And whom he allows to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone, having no partners, and that Muhammad Sallallahu I do send them into sleep and His messenger and his perfect worshiper. So we've been going over the names of Allah now for a couple of weeks. We've gotten started with Allah Allah rahman, rahim and Malik and Malik and Malik and produce a Salam. Al Amin or Mohammed, Al Aziz al Jabbar, Al Mata Kibera al Kabir at HYDAC

00:03:31 --> 00:03:48

at Haluk. Arsenal Halothane Raza No, we didn't do that. Albury and Musa afar have a four to half year. And now we come to alcohol. So alcohol,

00:03:49 --> 00:04:32

alcohol, also alcohol, these two names are similar to each other. And what a call hit means is the overpowering. So alcohol or fire is the overpower. He's the one that subjugates everything else and everyone else. I had his mentioned in the Quran of the verses in which I'll call here as mentioned the sort of that and on verse 18. or Allah says, well, well, I hope everybody will who had Hakeem will have you. Allah says and He is the subjugated over his servants and he is the wise the acquainted with all so he is the overpowering and Allah as he just says and another verse so hold tahoka everybody how are you see ya come help other

00:04:33 --> 00:04:52

mode to first hello Solana Rosa Luna oho hula you for return. Allah says and here's the subject matter over his servants and he sends over your guardian angels until when death comes to one of you. Our Messengers take him and they don't fail in their duties. So Allah azza wa jal is overpowering in the dunya.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

If he wasn't overpowering, we would all live forever. No one would choose to die. We wouldn't get sick. We

00:05:00 --> 00:05:09

wouldn't suffer calamities But Allah's Will overpowers our will. And also on the Day of Judgment, it becomes even more apparent his power over us.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:24

Allah says yo Muhammad his own layer for Allah Allah him in him shake, lemonade mill Cleome de la Hua kaha. Allah Azza says on the Day of Judgment when they are going to be by the zoo and they're going to be uncovered, they're going to be apparent everyone's going to be

00:05:27 --> 00:06:11

everyone's going to be apparent in front of Allah azza wa jal, Leia, mean life for Allah, Allah, him and him shade there's going to be nothing from Allah azza wa jal that is hidden from them. Everyone is going to be naked in every sense of the term. They're going to be uncovered in every sense of the term. And Allah azza wa jal will then say the man in will Coolio to who belongs the kingdom today to who belongs the power today to who belongs the dominium today, Lila Hila kaha to Allah azza wa jal the alone the one the overpowering. And remember we talked about these two names, why they're paired together. Why is you know the pairing of the names of Allah as we get in the Quran, they denote

00:06:11 --> 00:06:25

another meaning. So each name denotes a meaning. But then when the names are paired together another meaning is created. So what is the meaning that's created from hola hola, hola. Hola. Hola the alone the overpowering What do you guys think?

00:06:28 --> 00:07:07

Hola so there doesn't need anyone else. So I become powerful, not when I'm by myself. But when I've got six of my friends with me. Or when I've got an army with me, or when I've got a police force with me or when I have a weapon with me, right? So I'm not powerful in and of myself or become more powerful. When I have something else to add to my power. However, Allah azza wa jal is not powerful because of his angels. And Allah is not powerful or strengthened by any of his creation. Allah has revealed on the day of judgment and in this world He is and why he is an aha, he is the alone. He is the overpowering the prevailing and of the meanings of Bihar or CA here is that Allah azza wa jal

00:07:07 --> 00:07:19

resurrects us without our choice, and were presented to him for the account. If any one of us were to have the option about whether to experience the day of judgment or not to experience the Day of Judgment, we would pick what

00:07:20 --> 00:07:29

not to experience it. You're not going to know how to have used to say I wish I was like a piece of grass that is cast into the wind and is eaten by some animal and that's it.

00:07:32 --> 00:08:01

But we have no choice with regards to it. Just like we have no choice with regards to dying, we're going to die. And then we're going to be resurrected and presented to Allah azza wa jal. And so Allah's Will and his power overpowers are as you're meant to, but the earth ladle art was somehow to overrule the law had the kaha Allah says on the day where the earth will be replaced by another earth and the heavens as well. And all of the creatures will come up come out before Allah azza wa jal, the one the overpowering or the prevailing.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:09

And so how do I interact with this name of kaha? Well, one is I realize

00:08:10 --> 00:08:25

that, you know, the, the kahar is a is a sobering attributes of God. It is one that reminds me to calm myself when it comes to haram that I may be exposed to

00:08:26 --> 00:09:08

whether it's something that's available for me, whether it's some quick money, some fast cash that I might be able to make, and by fast, I mean a haram investment. It's not worth it. Why? Because I'm going to be presented to alcohol. If not, right now, immediately, definitely in the future. Or if some temptation comes my way and I have access to it, then I remember you know, this is like the pairing to last week we talked about the law of war and our father and Allah as we just mercy is so abundant, but at the same time Allah azza wa jal is the overpowering, at the same time I should fear Allah azza wa jal, I should be consciously, always conscious of Allah azza wa jal realize that Allah

00:09:08 --> 00:09:45

azza wa jal is overpowering. He is not someone who can be dominated by one to 1000 10,000 a million people a lot as we get prevails over everything and everyone and so that I act accordingly and that I treat Allah azza wa jal accordingly, that I avoid what is presented to me of evil or that which Allah as I did doesn't like because of my knowledge that Allah as it is a hot so Allah's Will over writes everything what I wanted to do with regards to this name, alcohol is I wanted to give you a moment to remember we talked at the beginning, first session that we did. We talked about three ways,

00:09:46 --> 00:10:00

or three meanings of the word ASA, or Esau. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said famously said in the Hadith, that Allah has 99 names 100 except for one, man, I saw her the halal Jana, whoever does saw of the

00:10:00 --> 00:10:06

These names will enter into paradise. And so we talked about airslot Having three meanings. So

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

does anybody remember what they are?

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

Understanding is one of them. So

00:10:14 --> 00:10:38

the first verse when you talk about understanding, you're talking about just figuring out what these names are. So a person maybe today didn't know that Allah one of the Allah's names. Aha, okay, now I learned something new. Right? I learned one of the names of Allah and that's what we were supposed to do. We're supposed to try to figure out what these names are or learn what these names are. So that's number one is to learn what the names are two, after I've learned the name, like I know Allah Azza Rahman or Rahim or

00:10:39 --> 00:10:45

that I compile, or that I memorize these names, I get them all.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

Like Pokeyman right, I was gonna

00:10:50 --> 00:10:58

because I do try to catch them all. You tried to get them all right, you tried to get all of the names of Eliza figured them out. Okay? And then the last is to do what

00:11:01 --> 00:11:02

interact with them? How

00:11:04 --> 00:11:36

do I know exactly that I call upon Allah as I did by these names. And so this whole point of us going through these names every single week, or whenever we do go over them, your drought shouldn't be the same. You should be figuring out alcohol what's going on in my life that I can make up for using the name of a hot like there's right now in my life and in your life? That instead of me just saying, Oh Allah, please take care of this for me that I say Oh Allah, please take care of this for me because you are a hawk.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:55

That's what you're supposed to do with the names of Allah. Allah says Allah Allah Allah smelled Krishna further Oh, who behind Allah says To Him belongs the beautiful names so call upon him by those names. So I wanted to give you a moment to just think of something in your life that you want to ask Allah Allah yet by the name of alcohol

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

that's it. I'm giving you a minute

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

it would be good to write it down.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:09

If you needed a hint

00:12:12 --> 00:12:15

I want you guys because when you think of anything that's in your life that

00:12:17 --> 00:12:24

have 100 means no one who's overpowering maybe there's someone who's overpowering you with regards to something and you want to say Oh ALLAH your power is above their power.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

You're on a hot

00:12:27 --> 00:12:34

there's someone that you need to do something and you say Oh Allah, you are alcohol you override everybody

00:12:38 --> 00:12:38


00:12:55 --> 00:12:56

you guys don't

00:12:59 --> 00:13:14

Okay, we're going to do the same I think it's a good practice to do. Basically with every name we just take it for a minute, we figure out what we want to make dua for or plug this name into one of our dogs and keep moving inshallah. So the next name is that we'll have

00:13:15 --> 00:13:19

and this is a beautiful name of the names of Allah and we'll have means the restore

00:13:20 --> 00:13:37

the one who gifts. Gi FTS, the one who gifts at the store. I will be storing exactly the store. I know how it's mentioned in the Quran a number of times this name Allah as he just says it'll burn it out. There's a clue when I bought this data and I will have you learned I mean the Dunker Rama in

00:13:39 --> 00:13:53

surah Allah Emraan the believers say Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after you have guided us and bestow upon us from you mercy. Indeed you are the historic so one of the things that Allah bestows is his Rama.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:26

Allah has agenda and another verse he says I'm in the home Hamza in Rahmatullah Becca Azizi. Lahab. Allah says, do they have the deposit the depositories of the Mercy of your Lord? Do they have access to the depositories of the Mercy of your Lord? Aziz as easy as the mighty Hello hub, the Bestower now why do you think these two names are paired up as ease the powerful the mighty Aloha, the one who bestows or do you guys think?

00:14:34 --> 00:14:34


00:14:35 --> 00:14:44

very good. So the one who's mighty arises, he's the one who can bestow he can get very good. Anything else? Any other thoughts?

00:14:49 --> 00:14:55

The verse says, or do they have the depositories of the Mercy of your Lord the Exalted in Might the Bestower.

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

The depositories of the Mercy of your Lord the

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

Exalted in Might the restore

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

anything come to mind

00:15:09 --> 00:15:10

everybody agrees with Osama

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

Yeah, okay that's fine. I'll just say

00:15:15 --> 00:15:16


00:15:18 --> 00:15:32

he said the might Allah as we get to because he's mighty he has access to Grant to everything that which is pretty much right he can grant access to everything Allah as we do can get access to everything

00:15:39 --> 00:15:47

so he's saying that some people think that they have it all in Allah as agenda is basically pointing that they they don't and that Allah is

00:15:51 --> 00:16:34

Allah azza wa jal he says in another verse, paella Bill fairly heavily milk ally and belly I had him embody in NACA, Antigua happ, he said, and this is today a man that are absolutely man that we talked about last week. He said, Oh my Lord, forgive me and bestow upon me a kingdom that will not belong to anyone else after me. You are the Bestower he said, My Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom. This is Sudan man or Solomon. Bestow for me a kingdom that no one will ever have after me You are the Bestower and Allah Azza. Yet in another verse, he says, Well, I talked to him and call him as ultimo. intero, dunya, amatola, Hilah Soha, in Al Insana, la Hello, Monica. Just the fact

00:16:34 --> 00:16:58

that the notion that Allah Azza yet He bestows and He bestows and He bestows and He grants and He grants any grants. And we are all every single one of us and we don't have to know each other and any single person that you see 7 billion people on Earth, every single one of them is immersed in the blessings of Allah. No matter what their story is, they are absolutely drowning. In the blessings of Allah azza wa jal, they just don't see it one time.

00:16:59 --> 00:17:00

I had

00:17:02 --> 00:17:05

who was with me, we were going to an IHOP

00:17:06 --> 00:17:11

I forget which area this was in, but it was a dark area in Houston. And

00:17:12 --> 00:17:27

I had, I was just checked with an another brother, but they had already gone in. So I met them. I parked my car. The parking lot was dark, I parked my car, and there was a guy sitting in the shadows. This guy was sitting in the darkness, okay.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:40

Just so I saw him in the corner of my eye, and then I was like, let me just go and lock my car. So I want to lock my car. And then as I'm walking, he's walking towards me. So he sees me. He says, Hey, man, are you muslim?

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

And I go, Yeah, I'm Muslim.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:49

And then he says, I want to give you something and he starts reaching into his bag. I'm like, What is this guy reaching for?

00:17:50 --> 00:17:51

So he says,

00:17:52 --> 00:18:08

I think he pulls out this super colored goofy hat, okay. He's like, I was in jail. And I just got out of jail. And this guy had tattoos all over his face. And he said, I just got out of jail. And

00:18:09 --> 00:18:15

I made this in prison. He wasn't Muslim. He said, I made this in prison. And I want you to have it.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:18

I said, Okay, thank you.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:40

I went inside. So then I told I told you, who do you divide it and the brother that was with us, and it was Haytham actually, so then they were like, give the guy like, $5 to go back out there and give him $5. So I went back out, I gave him I said, No, I have to give this to you stuff like that. And then he said, No, man, I can't take it. He said, I am drowning in the blessings of God.

00:18:41 --> 00:19:02

I was like, What are you talking about? He's like, I just got out of prison. I spend the night under this bridge right here. The cops, they don't bother me. They know I keep the area clean. And I just got a job. I've been praying and praying and praying and I just got a job today to be a dishwasher. And I'm so excited about it. And he's basically saying that hamdulillah like, I am so happy with my life right now.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:04

I was like Allahu Akbar.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:11

This man is so excited. And he's so happy. He's living under a bridge.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:25

But he's keeping it clean. And he doesn't he's not accepting any money. He's like, What do I want your money for? What I need your $5 for I'm absolutely content with what Allah Allah has given me and not only that, Allah has given me so much.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:59

Right? So if you were to count the blessings of Allah, you wouldn't be able to count it. Look at what Allah says these two verses are similar to one another, almost identical. Okay. Listen to this. Allah says, Well, I talked to him in CoolerMaster ultimo what? intero, dunya amatola hayleigh to Suha. In Al Insana, love alumina Kapha. He says he gave you from all that you asked him. And if you were to count the favor of Allah, you couldn't be able to count them. Indeed, mankind is Lululemon level

00:20:00 --> 00:20:23

lumen CAFOD, he is most unjust and ungrateful. That person who's complaining about oh my god, my life was horrible. I hate my life. That person Allah says, if you were to count the blessings of God on you, you wouldn't be able to count them. Mankind has two characteristics. They are oppressive. They are ungrateful. This is the default with regards to humanity.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:47

This is a famous verse you've probably all of you have probably heard it from, from before. But this verse is actually mirrored by another verse. This verse happens twice. Well, what does the second verse say? Allah azza wa jal says your entire diameter Allahu Allah. So Allah says, if you were to count and try to enumerate the favours of Allah, you wouldn't be able to count it and then Allah talks about himself.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:50

He says in Allahu Allah for writing.

00:20:52 --> 00:21:16

He says Allah azza wa jal love the same lamb that use for emphasis, love illumine Kapha. Allah says, Bella, hold on right? As if Allah azza wa jal is saying that the only way that anyone can deal with this ungrateful species called humanity and all of their lack of gratitude and all of their oppressiveness

00:21:17 --> 00:21:22

is if that Lord has the characteristics of being a fortune by

00:21:24 --> 00:21:41

overlooking so much and forgiving even more, the angels when Allah has really created them when he said he was going to create them there said I said to Alfie Herman used to do here is we could demand are you going to make on this earth those who are going to create corruption on this earth and spill blood?

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

Like what are these creatures that you're going to make?

00:21:45 --> 00:21:58

And Allah says, I know what you don't know. The Prophet sallallaahu Salam, he says about Allah, ma had us but Allah, Allah and Muhammad Allah, there is no one who is more patient with harm that he hears than Allah.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:09

There is no one who is more patient with harm that he hears than Allah azza wa jal, yet their own Allah who waited for my fee him all yours, Oklahoma, they ascribe to Allah a son.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:14

And he continues to give them health, and he continues to give them wealth.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:31

Oh, come on Castle, Elijah Cena, there is no one who can deal with that level of ingratitude. There is no one who can deal or is more patient with all of the blessings that He gives to his creature creation, and then gives them general guidelines here, here's the gift of sight, here's the gift of hearing.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:55

Use it for all that you want. But don't look at these particular things or don't listen to these particular things or avoid with your tongue, these particular statements, and then humanity turns around and says, but there's no fun in anything but these particular statements and looking at these particular things, and listening to this particular whatever it is, in Atlanta in Santa Monica for humanity is oppressive, and they are

00:22:57 --> 00:23:03

ungrateful. Now, if a person were to count all of their blessings are talking about Allah as being a little hub.

00:23:05 --> 00:23:26

Say a person is able to account for all of their breaths, their cells, and everything that takes place in them say they were able to encompass all of the meals that they've ever experienced and ever enjoyed. They ever ate. Maybe they were able to quantify concepts like family and friendship and love it they're able to quantify these things, how would you still be able to

00:23:27 --> 00:23:35

quantify, quantify blessings that come in the form of harms that Allah has directed away from you?

00:23:37 --> 00:23:44

And those are in the 1000s, and the millions and the billions? Every single one of us,

00:23:45 --> 00:23:46

every single one of us,

00:23:47 --> 00:24:29

had we made different choices, or other people around us made different choices, our lives would be drastically different. Yes, you're stopping at a red light. But your safety depends on the person behind you looking up before they stopped texting, right? Or a person across from you deciding not to run that red, right or to not drink and drive and we are all at the mercy of everybody around us and their choices. And how many times there's no way for you to know really how Allah azza wa jal protects you in every single day from harm. And hence the Ramana Mahatama or the lion who when a calamity did strike him, he would say every time a calamity would strike me, I would be thankful for

00:24:29 --> 00:24:41

four things. The first is that that calamity was not in my religion. It's a calamity in my health. It's a calamity in my wealth. It's a calamity with regards to anything else. As long as it's not in my deed.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

That's a good thing. That's a plus.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:47

The second is that it wasn't greater.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

I lost the child. I didn't lose them all. Could have been greater. I became sick. I could have had a worse sickness could have been greater. That it wasn't

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

greater the perspective that he has. The third is he says that

00:25:06 --> 00:25:13

with lamb Rama Robbie that I am I wasn't prevented from being

00:25:15 --> 00:25:16

content with that

00:25:17 --> 00:25:42

calamity. So Emirati Allah who realizes that in that moment or he's able to be content with the calamity, that this is a great blessing from Allah azza wa jal that Allah granted him Sabha and that Allah granted him a ruler. And the fourth is what it's all just so about it, that I hope to be rewarded for this calamity. Even though came he says sometimes Allah azza wa jal desires a place in paradise for a person.

00:25:43 --> 00:26:06

But that person's actions aren't enough to bring him there. So Allah azza wa jal will then cast a calamity in the direction of that person. You know, Allah wants a person to have a certain level in paradise, but you know what, they're not really big on fasting Mondays and Thursdays and three days a month and all of that they don't do that. And they don't pray more than their football. And they don't give more than theirs.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:25

They're just not about extra worship, but Allah wants this person to be there. So how does that person get their Allah senza calamity their way in their health or in their family or in their wealth? Not in their Deen because they need their Deen. But Allah azza wa jal tests that person and then he grants that person patience.

00:26:27 --> 00:27:04

And through that patience, they ascend to the level that Allah has a desire for that person. Right? And so some of us, we arise in our rankings because of our patients because of our calamities. So emerald, Allah Allah says, I hope to be rewarded during these calamities, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a surah that's dedicated to him. Allah as we just says, will have will lately either soldier Mao a dagger or Bukola malerkotla with a hero to hate on luck Amina Lulu, this sword is a beautiful sort of that the prophets of Allah it is it the Sunnah is dedicated to Rasulullah cellulitis in them. And in it Allah azza wa jal mentioned some of the blessings that the prophets of

00:27:04 --> 00:27:07

Allah they sent him experience. So he says, man with dark,

00:27:09 --> 00:27:15

all over the software article, a book of Allah, Allah says, let me do you think a team of our Didn't he find you to be an orphan?

00:27:16 --> 00:27:17

And he took care of you?

00:27:18 --> 00:27:24

Weren't you an orphan, you know, the orphans are the weakest in society. Children in general are the weakest in society, but

00:27:26 --> 00:27:33

you know, they have their parents to protect them, to nurture them to provide for them. But when an orphan or when a child doesn't have

00:27:34 --> 00:27:53

the protective care of their parents, how we can how frail is that child? The Prophet sallallaahu, Selim was an orphan. And Allah Azza just says, Didn't he find you an orphan, he took care of you. He's the one who raised you. He's the one who provided for you. Or the Cabal and for Haida he found you uninformed. You didn't know how to worship Allah, you didn't have Revelation, He guided you.

00:27:54 --> 00:28:00

What would you think ah, even further than that, and he found you destitute, he enriched you, the prophets of Allah, Allah has sent him.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:38

He was enriched by Allah azza wa jal, he had access to wealth, he had access to wealth. He was rich, not in the sense that he lived a luxurious life but he had access to wealth the prophets of Allah, Allah is sending them with distribute the prophesy send them on the Day of how he sacrificed the 100 camels. He distributed all of them, the province of Elijah set it up, he would say that if I wished that I would have a mountain his way to a mountain size of gold, and that I would distribute all of it, except for three pieces of gold that I will keep for myself. I shall doula and how she says that three months would go by.

00:28:39 --> 00:29:05

And a fire would not be kindled in the house of the Prophet Sobald itis and three months, three months would go by 123 You know what a fire not being kindled in the house of the province symbolizes and it means it means that he's not eating cooked food. He's not eating cooked food, no meat, nothing for three months. The only thing that he's eating are dates and water, dates and water and I should have the line he calls them the two black things. Now his water black.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:10

Water black. Why does he call it the black thing? Let's go down.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:15

Because water can be blocked. Yes.

00:29:16 --> 00:29:19

I mean, yeah, so if you're drinking 99.9% purified

00:29:20 --> 00:29:59

Zuko or whatever you're in Texas, forget what it's called. Poland Springs, as aka or whatever. Such a weird brand. But if you're drinking that, right, it's 100% Clear. You're like what my waters clean. But if you're drinking water that's coming from the bottom of a well, or you're drinking water that doesn't have any of these pure purifying gum mechanisms. Yeah, water can be muddy. Water can be murky and water can be dark. So I show the lion saying that's what the Prophet SAW. I said I'm used to drink and that's what he used to eat. I'm going even hotter the lion who enters upon the house of the Prophet So listen to me enters into his room.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:11

And he finds nothing in the room except for a mat that is so harsh. There's no king size bed fertile so much that under no fluffy pillows, he finds a harsh mat that when he would lie on it, there were

00:30:13 --> 00:30:37

markings on his side. And Roman himself as powerful as a character as he is as strong as a man as he is. He began to weep. And he says elders will lie, you know, Kisara and rulers of Persian Room, they're living in this luxury, and you're living like this, you're the messenger of God. And he says, Omar, Aren't you satisfied? Aren't you content, that for them is the dunya and for us is that

00:30:38 --> 00:30:46

for us is this for them is this world and for them, for us? For them is this world and for them, is the hereafter?

00:30:47 --> 00:30:55

So Allah as he just says, words are the Kabbalah and Fido to the guy in Athena? And then Allah says, familia team of Allah Takara. Allah says, As for the orphan,

00:30:57 --> 00:31:01

don't oppress them, just like you were an orphan.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

And we provided for you and we took care of you.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:22

When you come across an orphan Oh Mohamed Salah la de Silva, and everybody else who's from the OMA from Hammonds liberalize, Do not oppress that orphan. Don't debase that orphan. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, the most honored house, in the houses of the Muslims is a house in which an orphan is respected and honored.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:30

And the worst houses in the houses of the Muslims, is a house in which an orphan is humiliated.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:58

What a messiah Illa fell out. And as for the one who is asking, don't repel them, don't be harsh to them, don't rebuke them, lighten up, just like you were bought for her that you were ignorant at some point in time and Allah azza wa jal taught you when you have access to knowledge now, and you have been given information, when that person comes to ask you a question, don't be arrogant towards them.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:04

Don't Don't belittle them. Don't tell them that their question is stupid.

00:32:05 --> 00:32:42

There was a time where you didn't know. And Allah azza wa jal gave you that information Allah azza wa jal taught you and so you thank Allah as we did for that blessing by doing the same for other people, or if Allah azza wa jal has enriched you, what did the guy even further now? Messiah in forgotten how the person who comes to ask you for material sustenance, or spiritual sustenance, in the form of a question about the religion, that you don't turn them away? harshly? If you have you answer it beautifully, or you give beautifully, and if you don't have, that you turn them away beautifully, and with respect and with dignity.

00:32:44 --> 00:32:48

The poor, have a right to

00:32:49 --> 00:33:27

the poor have a right to our wealth. This is part of thankfulness to Allah azza wa jal, who gifts in bestows upon us, the weak have a right regarding our strength. Those who are unable have a right with regards to our ability, and those who have an ignorance have a right towards our knowledge. And so out of my thankfulness to Allah azza wa jal, I give everyone the right as best as I can. Everyone has a right regarding something that they can't do, and something that you can do. So being thankful for Allah as a gift for bestowing upon you what he didn't bestow on other people, and make it part of your thankfulness that you direct a portion of what Allah has done has given you to others. And

00:33:27 --> 00:33:40

remember that every blessing will eventually leave you, every blessing is going to eventually leave you either, it's going to leave you first, or eventually you're going to leave it, but there's no blessing that stays with his partner forever. And

00:33:41 --> 00:33:49

finally, with a road Sue, I do have, and blessings, there are so many blessings that we never even think about.

00:33:50 --> 00:34:27

And if any of our brothers or sisters who work in health, whether they're doctors or nurses or physical therapists, or what have you, they were to sit there and tell us and talk to us about how our body functions and all of the things that are involved in us simply, you know, getting up and doing what we normally do every single day without thinking about it, we'd be amazed. And when you add to that the blessings of a family of, of relatives of passions of dreams of talents, of, of respect, even the respect that a person has the fact that when you go somewhere people you know want to shake your hand or they want to hear what you have to say. Or you know, they're kind to you, this

00:34:27 --> 00:34:32

is all from the disk of Allah azza wa jal. So, this is

00:34:34 --> 00:34:36

what I wanted to share with regards to what will happen.

00:34:38 --> 00:35:00

It's important that we reflect on the blessings that Allah bestows on us. And we reflect on our level of appreciation for the blessings that Allah has has given us. And that we remember that every blessing that Allah gives us there is a right that's associated with that blessing. So part of of thankfulness is to simply say, and Hamdulillah you know, the prophets of Allah

00:35:00 --> 00:35:39

SM says that Allah azza wa jal, he loves, that when a person eats or when they drink that they said Hamdulillah that I just recognize that this food or drink, I'm not better than millions of people who are living on less than $1 a day, I'm not better than them in any single way that the only difference is that Allah put me in a position where I can spend $30 on a meal or $20 on a meal or $100 on a meal. And he made other people from his slaves who you may prefer over us not be able to eat anything except for dates and water, right or even less than that. So being thankful to Allah as we get so we conclude with that and I just want to give you guys a minute as well to think of a dua

00:35:39 --> 00:35:54

that you can make to Allah azza wa jal with regards to your life that involves the word Aloha, Aloha, the one who bestows What is something that you wish that you desire that you need to be bestowed upon you by Aloha.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:24

There are a lot of beautiful dogs in the Quran, by the way, that use the word hello Have you heard the giraffes today man? That's something

00:36:26 --> 00:36:28

I was gonna say that something that you can say but you're not going to get it

00:36:30 --> 00:36:38

because it was only for Sudan man, but I've been allowed to so Cordoba, Nevada, Dayton, Ohio and I'm in the Dunker Rama in the central hub that's a beautiful Oh our Lord

00:36:40 --> 00:36:53

do not make our hearts slip after you've guided us and that's a really consistent die that we all need to make. What have you done I mean Luca Rama and grant us bestow upon us from Yourself mercy in the control hub. You are the VIP store.

00:36:54 --> 00:36:55

You guys are good with that.

00:36:57 --> 00:37:03

Okay, so the last one is solid data that we're going to go over is Zack,

00:37:04 --> 00:37:09

also a Razak and he'll rise up in high rise, okay.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:11

I'm gonna suck

00:37:12 --> 00:37:14

rizact means the provider.

00:37:15 --> 00:37:22

result means the continuous provider. Razak means the provider hierarchy means the best of providers.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:36

So Allah so you mentioned that Rezac in sort of the variac, Allah says in Allah who resembles we'll call it in Mateen. Allah says, Indeed, Allah is the continual provider, the firm possessor of strength.

00:37:38 --> 00:37:49

And that's right after the sequence or Allah Azza says, well Malak to jeenode ins Ilaria, Buddha, the famous verse, where Allah says, I have not created the jinn and mankind except to do what?

00:37:50 --> 00:38:12

To worship me. That's the only reason people just think about this. There are 7 million people on this earth, half of them are really concerned with why are they here? Maybe less than half? But people have this question, well, why am I here? What's the purpose of life? And you as a Muslim, it was just delivered to you. This is the what the purpose of life is a Maha Doctor denote. It's a simple equation. Simple.

00:38:13 --> 00:38:51

I am here to worship God. That's why I'm here. But then it becomes well worship. That seems like very robotic. Are you telling me that you're here? 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 70 years or whatever? To just worship God? And we say to them, no, well, yes. But worship isn't just rituals. Worship in Islam is encompassing encompass says everything that God loves is worship. Okay? So Allah says, we've created mankind and the jinn except to worship me. Now. What do you mean, you mean, humorist wanna read two or three more? Allah says, I have no desire of risk from them. I'm not asking them to provide me with anything. I don't benefit anything from them. Why not? What are you

00:38:51 --> 00:39:10

doing here to the moon? I don't want them to feed me. There's nothing there's no benefit that will come from our worship of Allah azza wa jal. And then Allah says, I'm the one who provides for them. They don't provide for me, I provide for them in Allah was up there. COVID Timothy, Allah is the provider, the possessor of firm strength.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:16

Now, why is a result and Wilco and Mateen paired together

00:39:18 --> 00:39:25

what do you guys get out result is the provider and he's the one who's the possessor of firm strength

00:39:30 --> 00:39:31

someone other than Osama

00:39:39 --> 00:39:39


00:39:43 --> 00:39:47

I didn't say anybody I just said yes. Or whoever feels

00:39:51 --> 00:39:52


00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

Okay, now you can say yes to that. He said he's not compelled to provide Okay, very good. I like that.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:03

By the way, I'm not saying that I have a right answer here. I'm just asking you guys.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:24

Okay? I mean, it's your own reflections, little coverted Mateen. So I like that That's beautiful. So Allah as a result he's providing and Allah is the Possessor of strength, you're not going to bully Allah into providing for you. Allah provides out of his own will completely. That's very beautiful. Exactly. Look at what else do you guys get?

00:40:28 --> 00:40:51

Okay, so you need strength to provide so here we have Allah Allah is the provider because he is the recording machine. He is strong, and he has the ability to provide and he is the greatest provider he's little resolutely and because he is the strongest he's able to provide for everyone. Yes. What else? I'm expecting something like genius to come out of this UN General Assembly meeting that you guys are having no.

00:40:52 --> 00:40:55

Yes. Oh, you weren't raising your hand.

00:40:56 --> 00:40:59

Okay, you're scratching your head. Okay.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:17

Hey, it'll raise the incomes in five verses as for one of the verses um, this Elohim how to Jennifer Herradura bigger Hey, woohoo, a halo rise a teen. Allah says do you ask them for payment mean Mohamed Salah send them do you ask them for payment but the reward of your Lord is best and he is the best of providers.

00:41:19 --> 00:41:29

So, there are some people who are providers. But Allah as human beings, they provide for one another yes or no. Your parents provide for you.

00:41:30 --> 00:41:31

People provide for each other.

00:41:33 --> 00:41:47

But Allah as we just says he has heightened rise, okay. He is the greatest of providers. He is the creator of the person and Allah as again as the creator of the of the instrument. He's the creator of the person. He's the creator of the instrument through which they seek the risk.

00:41:49 --> 00:41:53

And he's the creator of the risk itself. So he's the creator of everything.

00:41:54 --> 00:42:34

Every step along the process of acquiring risk. Now there are two types of risk. The first type of risk is general risk. This is risk that befalls and is experienced by everyone and everything. All of his creatures Allah Azza did provides for Allah says Well mom and dad but in fell Earth, it Allah Allah, Allah He does. kaha Allah says and there is no creature on Earth, but that upon Allah is its provision. So Allah as agender provides for the worms and the fish in the sea and Allah provides for the birds and Allah provides for everything and anything. However many billion insects there are Allah as it provides for that mosquito that bites you at night. That is all provided for Eliza by

00:42:34 --> 00:42:35


00:42:36 --> 00:42:37

And then

00:42:38 --> 00:43:13

even those who believe or those who disbelieve Allah provides for all of humanity. The same with regards to this regard. Ibrahim I didn't set up says in his die this recorded in sort of the Bacara Allah Ibrahim says with Scarlett Rahim Allah which I had a better than Amazon what is the Home Minister Marathi Muhammad Amin home Billa, who will do him in Parliament cover for material Kadena Thoreau, who Allah Allah be now Robinson merci Maaseiah when Abraham said, My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits, whoever then believes in Allah and the Last Day, and whoever disbelieves I will grant him Allah says, and whoever disbelieves Ibrahim Edison on his part

00:43:13 --> 00:43:52

is all my Lord, bless the people of this town, and make this a place that secure grants people fruits, whoever then believes in Allah and the Last Day, Allah says, that's done. As for those who disbelieve for all material Kadena, don't worry, I'm going to take care of them too, for now, to my thorough Huila as I've been now and then after that, I will force him to the punishment of the fire, and wretched is that a destination so Allah is saying everybody is going to be provided for in this earthly experience. And then after that, the believers will be rewarded with paradise and those who disbelieve will be rewarded with the hellfire. So that's a general risk that all of Allah's

00:43:52 --> 00:43:59

creatures experience, then you have a specific risk. And this specific risk splits for who take a guess.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:08

Let me see it under my breath so I can hear it and everybody else kind of here is just the general murmuring.

00:44:09 --> 00:44:11

That's all I'm hearing I'm hearing out on

00:44:13 --> 00:44:14

the believers,

00:44:15 --> 00:44:16

the believers.

00:44:17 --> 00:45:00

So that is the risk of iman. That's the risk of of belief in Allah azza wa jal and knowing Allah azza wa jal and righteous actions that are risk. Allah azza wa jal says, Yeah, you have nurses Curonian Mata Allah Hiya, Alikum Hellman hydroquin Ray Rula here Zoku Mina sama it will Earth that Illa Illa who have a network of Allah as well as the provider, Allah says, All Mankind remember the favor of your Lord upon you. Is there any creator other than Allah, who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? There is no deity except for him. So how are you deluded? And another verse Allah says Pullman Yasuko Mina sama it will mean a similar to a lot. Paula will inner OER Camilla

00:45:00 --> 00:45:22

Houda ofI though it will be, say, who provides for you from the heavens and the earth say Allah. And indeed we are you are either upon guidance or in clear air. And so contemplating this name as a result, makes a person completely dependent on Allah as though it didn't alone. They realize that whatever it is that I desire, what I want what I'm seeking to actualize. It's in the hands of Allah azza wa jal. And if I were to knock on every door,

00:45:23 --> 00:45:44

the Imams door, the CEO of the company's door, send out 50 or 100 resumes, I talked to 1000 people with regards to doing this. I get a petition signed with 500 1000 2000 100,000 people, I do all of that, and I get the support of everyone. If I don't get the support of Allah azza wa jal, it's not happening.

00:45:45 --> 00:45:46

It's just not.

00:45:47 --> 00:45:52

And so the Prophet sallallahu, Sydenham says if that's the first Adela if you were to ask the article.

00:45:53 --> 00:46:14

And if you are to seek the help of anyone, seek the help of Allah azza wa jal, and then the province as Sam says, Know that if an entire nation were to get together to help you with something, they wouldn't be able to help you. It's something that Allah has already done for you. And if an entire nation were to get together to harm you, they wouldn't be able to harm you except without Allah azza wa jal has already written for you. So

00:46:16 --> 00:46:47

recognizing that Allah azza wa jal is the one who all of the hearts of the world are in his head. He's the one who controls everything. That doesn't mean that I don't send out resumes and I don't go and knock on people's doors and I don't go and I work, I recognize that all of that are means that Allah as of yet has placed on this earth so I fulfill all of the means I don't just sit at home and do nothing. But my heart the entire time is not attached to if I just get this one meeting with this guy, it's going to happen.

00:46:48 --> 00:47:03

That's not where my heart is attached to my heart is attached to who, to Allah, Allah. And that's why the prophets of Allah Islam says in a powerful Hadith he says, Lo Terkel tomb Allah Allah, if you really depended on Allah, as he deserves to be dependent on

00:47:05 --> 00:47:08

he would have provided for you like he provides for the birds.

00:47:10 --> 00:47:12

They leave their nest in the morning hungry

00:47:14 --> 00:47:53

and they return for now the birds the showerhead here. The point is that the birds, the prophesy, Sam says they depend on Allah beautifully. But the birds don't just sit in their nests, waiting for the food to drop from the sky. They go out early, and they spend their entire day looking for food. But then they always come back for Okay, so you're fulfilling with your body, you're fulfilling all of the actions that are required for you to actualize success. But your heart during the entire time is connected to Allah azza wa jal, and it is asking ALLAH and it's not depending on any of these means, because you could go through all of these means and not acquire what you want to acquire.

00:47:54 --> 00:47:55


00:48:01 --> 00:48:04

To reflect on risk is also to reflect on the power of Allah.

00:48:05 --> 00:48:07

When you think of the crocodile,

00:48:09 --> 00:48:25

the crocodile that can eat a cow, right eats all of these huge animals and it swallows it whole. And then the crocodile after it's done eating, it goes on to like the river back, and it gets some sun because it's hot. And then you see this little bird

00:48:26 --> 00:48:35

fly into the mouth of the crocodile. And then it starts eating from the teeth of the crocodile. And the crocodile is just sitting there with its dangerous jaws open.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:39

And they have this understanding. It's so strange when you watch it.

00:48:40 --> 00:48:44

Lots of birds they just come forget what the called the plover

00:48:45 --> 00:48:52

it just goes and sits there and it's just pecking away at the teeth of the crocodile. It's like cleaning the teeth of the crocodile. And then it leaves.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:01

And you see that the Allah as we did made the risk of this bird, like how masterful is this he made the risk of the bird in the jaws of the crocodile

00:49:03 --> 00:49:15

to show you the power of the risk of Allah has no idea that he will, it will come from different angles it'll come from dangerous places. But if Allah as a Jetta writes it then

00:49:17 --> 00:49:27

anywhere you go, or anywhere it is written to come from it can come to you beautifully and safely. Even if it's dangerous for everyone else, that's the power of the risk of Eliza and the control of Allah.

00:49:29 --> 00:49:40

So the risk of Allah as a dead is great and almost done the risk of Allah as we get to. It's great, you know of it is health and an intellect. You know, just the intelligence that you have your ability to comprehend

00:49:41 --> 00:49:53

the food and drink obviously that you have children, you know, wealth, beauty, youth personality, inspiration, even your personalities that is from Allah as you know, Would you trade personalities with somebody else?

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

Are there some people whose personalities you would definitely not take on?

00:50:00 --> 00:50:08

Yes, right. And so that proves to you right there that oh my goodness, Allah blessed me with this personality. He made me so cool like he just

00:50:09 --> 00:50:12

and I mean that risk that was from Allah Azza

00:50:13 --> 00:50:17

even that is just a man once came to a sage, he came to a Hakeem.

00:50:18 --> 00:50:32

And he was complaining to him about hygiene. He was complaining to him that he needed stuff. It's just like, I need I need a heat I need. So then the sage said to him, this eyesight of yours? Would you sell it to me for 100,000 dinars, let's say $100,000 but yourself. It's me. It's like no,

00:50:33 --> 00:50:49

either. What about your, your hearing? Would you sell it to me for 100,000? He goes, No. Okay, what about your sense of smell? You don't need that? How about your nose? 100,000 He goes, No. Your hands? I need those hands. 100,000 Like, you can't take my hands. Your feet that

00:50:50 --> 00:51:05

100,000 He goes, No. He just kept mentioning different things. He kept saying, No, I gotta give it to 400,000 What do you mean? No, no, no, no. He said, I see that you're a walking millionaire. And you're complaining to me about neat?

00:51:07 --> 00:51:19

Like, what would you what would you sell any of these things that you have? These are all blessings from Allah as though you drink water. You breathe air. You walk on your feet, you hear with your ears, you see with your eyes, you understand with your intellect

00:51:20 --> 00:51:53

you feel with your heart. All of these are blessings from Allah Azur that he gets. And if you were to count them, you wouldn't be able to count them. So we respond to this with thankfulness. Because Thankfulness is what keeps her just present. Allah says if you are thankful I will increase you. And so we respond to that with thankfulness. And the best of risk is that which brings tranquility and happiness to the province of Elijah Selim, he says in a beautiful Hadith, he's talking about his wife Heidi Jaya who had long path he says in New Zealand to Oba I was provided

00:51:54 --> 00:52:13

her love or in music to Abuja, I was provided with love for her either way, depending on how you read it. But the province of I sent him is looking at this love that he experienced between him and his wife. And he sees that as a risk that came to him from Eliza because a person can have

00:52:14 --> 00:52:51

a relationship with someone that isn't the same and how beautiful is it when something that is a risk that is brought to you is love of someone who's as deserving of it as detail of your line has, because you can be someone like Mitch no Leila, you just fall in love with some random person in the street and you have all of this passion towards them, and they're not deserving of it. But love is blind that's why the phrase is Love is blind. Right? And so the Prophet SAW sent him saying like, this is a beautiful blessing that came to me that I was given this intense emotion to somebody who's so deserving cardinality Allah. So last to conclude is one minute or less Zack, what is something

00:52:51 --> 00:52:54

that you can ask for from Allah azza wa jal by the name

00:52:55 --> 00:52:57

or hero Raza clean or at Raza?

00:53:07 --> 00:53:11

When he like a smart listener to Allah belong the most beautiful name so call upon Him.

00:53:50 --> 00:53:53

Cool otherwise if there are any questions,
